Blog Tour - Character Profile : A Friendly Flirtation by Christine Warner

A Friendly Flirtation by Christine Warner
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Release Date: February 15th, 2016

Allison Hall is fed up with being a social outcast. Even at the tech company where she works for her brother and his best friend, Jared, she's the invisible nerdy girl. What she needs is confidence—and that requires a makeover and dating tips. And she knows just the man to help…

Jared Esterly is shocked when Allison asks for his assistance and turns her down, knowing that her brother—his business partner and best friend, Nick—would kill him if he dated her, even if it is just for practice. But when Al’s attempt to make changes on her own fails spectacularly, Jared reluctantly steps in. Things heat up quickly, and soon lessons move from the salon to the bedroom.

When overprotective big-brother Nick discovers Jared is dating Allison, their friendship and business partnership sour. Allison, consumed by guilt, must make a choice: stay with Jared, even though that means ruining his friendship with Nick and possibly his career, or leave the one man who sets her on fire.



About the Author

Besides laughing and a good round of humor, she enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, reading, writing but no arithmetic.  A confessed people watcher, she finds inspiration for her stories in everyday activities.  She loves to read and write about strong heroes and determined, sometimes sassy heroines.

Character Profile: Allison

Name: Allison Hall, but most people call me Al.

Hair: Blonde

Eyes: Jared describes my eyes as doe-like brown. I think that’s sweet.

Age: 23

Place of Residence: Chicago, the windy city.

Hobbies: I adore my job, but I do like to collect penguins. My mother passed away when I was very young and she collected penguins. I took over the collection and it’s a little out of control but I can’t resist them. I also like to cook, especially for Gramps.

Goals: I want it all—in my personal life and my professional life. Mainly I want to fit in and be a normal girl. Being a geek isn’t all bad, but when I asked Jared for help it was because I knew in order to truly be happy I had to find a balance.

Least favorite word: I’ve never really thought about it. I think I’m going to have to say I don’t have one. They all have their uses, don’t they? lol

Turn ons: Jared. Everything he says and does, the way he moves. I can’t get enough of him.

Turn offs: This might sound silly, but I’d have to say mean spirited people. Why can’t people just treat others how they’d like to be treated? In order to do that they’re going to have to be able to put themselves in others shoes.

Sound or noise you love: Jared’s voice. My stomach flips every time. Especially when he says my name.

Sound or noise you hate: I’ve never been fond of the alarm clock, which is why I always wake up before it goes off. lol

Favorite curse word: Gramps would have a coronary if he heard me cursing. The most I dare get away with is “heck”. I guess I’m not only a nerdy girl, but a good girl.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? I love penguins, so if I wasn’t a computer geek I think I’d like to work with animals. Maybe at the zoo or a park.

What profession would you not like to do? Hmm, interesting question. I love to take care of the people who mean a lot to me, but I don’t think I could ever be a doctor, or any type of medical caregiver. I know I’d get too attached and I wouldn’t be able to keep a professional distance.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Your mother has been waiting to see you again. And then he’d wave his arm to the side and my mother would be standing their smiling. Just the thought of seeing her again makes my heart smile.
